No one at WOWS thought that Operations was important enough to be re-worked in time for the 0.8.0?? so now we're down to 4 Operations , great planning . and i'm sure fixing Ops will be on the back burner as the CV re-work is tweaked,nerfed,buffed,re-balanced ect....for the next couple of patches.  For the amount of trouble the CV rework is causing I hope it's worth it.

Bots are not ready for it so they are temporarily removed.

  • Cherry Blossom
  • Operation Dynamo
  • The Ultimate Frontier
  • Raptor Rescue
  • Hermes

Maybe. I think is more a matter of resource allocation.

Still, sad to see good Ops like Dynamo or Cherry Blossom go.

I will miss Cherry Blossom... Set my record for captain XP in my Chappy in that scenario. Shame...

I won't miss UF or Hermes, but Cherry Blossom and Raptor Rescue will be missed, along with Dynamo.

Good riddance to Ultimate FU and Raptor Rescue, but I'm really going to miss Dynamo. Removing Cherry Blossom is very harsh though because the enemy bombers appear for only less than 5 minutes, that's it. Hermes is also harsh because GZ only appears near the end of the battle. The Lexington in Narai is still present but it doesn't launch planes anymore, so I don't see why WG can't do the same for GZ in Hermes.

On one hand I don't really care about OPs.

Here's the problem, myself and many others do!  When I do work on someones motorcycle i don't give it back to the customer until it's done, I don't send it out  80% functional I make sure all it's systems are working at 100%

what a mess

I'm glad that Ultimate FU was among those that were removed but I am very disappointed to see Dynamo, Cherry Blossom, and Dynamo go. Hopefully they will return within a patch or two.

I'm betting they are simply determined to force players into random again...there's a whole set of players who do nothing but farm these scenarios, and WG doesn't like it.

Dynamo & Cherry Blossom were two of the most fun ops. CB was very profitable, too (using Kutuzov). Hopefully WG doesn't take too long to get them back in rotation.

To be fair, judging by the Russian dashcam vids, sending semi-functional vehicles out on the road to test mods is pretty much standard operating procedure over there...

How so? Do you care to have potentially badly balanced bot CVs?

Gotta balance first, and for that, live server feedback is needed. Then the CV AI can be tweaked properly.

Well there you go! Should WG send Operations out to you 80% functional, with CVs that aren't fully tested and balanced? Or should they make sure it's working 100%?

Or they should have planned ahead and dealt with it before hand? They removed carriers from some of them already, clearly they knew this was coming....

This one hurts. I only play PVE and operations. 

I always roll my eyes when people say they are taking a break because of a change. Well I think I may take a break. Poor poor planning.

Just thought about something...this means there will be no bot CV's in co-op?

If so, does this mean you have to spec ships differently for different modes?:Smile_amazed:

That's a lie, nobody is going to miss Raptor Rescue. That one and Naval Station Newport are probably the worst of the original run of operations.

 

I'm with you on Cherry Blossom though. I liked that one. Even if it was asinine that we couldn't play the night combat mission as the navy that actually trained in night combat.

Yes from what I have heard the bot cv slot will be filled with a BB.

Raptor Rescue used to be fun before they "fixed" it. As for what's left, guess I'm not playing Ops for a LONG time, PUG randos can't handle Killer Whale and Naval Defense.

*sigh* I just broke down and bought guineas last night to get Cossack, because I wanted to play Dynamo...

Most scenarios of late have had their attack planes removed already so no big surprise that ones that had planes crucial to their design were yanked until AI could use planes again.
